Maryland's People and Points of Interest
The seventh state of Maryland is one of two states which gave part of their territory to devote to the United States capital, Washington DC, named in honor for the first president of the country. It's a small state with 12,500 miles of land divided in half by the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the US, and the third largest in the world. Although the size of the state leans towards the smaller side, you can still find multiple portions of land for sale in Maryland.
Maryland has a population of approximately 6 million people. While its largest city is Baltimore with close to 620,000 people, its capital is Annapolis, home to the US Naval Academy. Less than 40 miles away lies Bethesda, known for its military medical and research institutions and some of the country's top medical facilities including Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the National Institutes of Health. Besides the Naval Academy, Maryland is home to John Hopkins University, the University of Maryland, Loyola University of Maryland, and many other great colleges and universities. Also found here are the National Aquarium, the Antietam National Battlefield, and Assateague Island, where the Chincoteague ponies run free.

Maryland's Geography, Land, and Climate
For those curious about what the land for sale in Maryland has to offer, consider the fact that the state is often referred to as "America in Miniature." While small, the state contains most of the land types found around the country, save for a desert landscape. While there aren't any high mountains, Hoye Crest on Backbone Mountain standing at 3,360-feet may seem high enough.
Agriculture contributes some $17 billion in revenue to the state each year. Maryland's top crops come from greenhouses and nurseries producing ornamental horticultural products. However, the state also produces corn and soybeans, wheat, barley, hay, and tobacco. Broiler chickens are raised here and there are more than 350 dairy farms throughout the state.
